The anniversary of Mac Miller death is around the corner, and we finally know who allegedly supplied him with the drug that took his life. Mac Miller death sent shockwaves through the Hip Hop community and to his lifelong fans. As we are two days shy of the one-year mark of his death, Miller’s alleged Hollywood Hills drug dealer has been arrested and charged in connection with his passing.
According to NBC, federal prosecutors charged 28-year-old Cameron James Pettit on Wednesday (September 4), accusing him of providing Miller with the drugs. Cameron James Pettit, who was denied bail by U.S. Magistrate Judge Maria Audero per the feds’ request, faces up to 20 years in prison. The government released a 42-page criminal complaint against Pettit that goes into the details surrounding the night Mac bought the drugs that killed him.
Miller was discovered unresponsive in his Studio City home on Sept. 7, 2018. The manner of death was certified as an accident, although it was later determined that the rapper died from an overdose of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl. Investigators, who served search warrants at multiple locations, recovered a plastic bag containing pills allegedly supplied by a prostitute and a madam. Two days earlier, Pettit delivered to Miller counterfeit oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl, cocaine and Xanax.
Cameron James Pettit was denied bail, and will remain behind bars until he is arraigned on October 11.
